Statement of Significance (as of designation - August 7, 2001):
S.R. Crown Hall (1950-56), located on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, is a critically important monument in postwar construction. The building epitomizes "Miesian" modern architecture as well as the International Style, which has long been accepted as one of the 20th Century's most important and widely distributed architectural styles. Crown Hall has national significance because of its close personal and professional association with Mies van der Rohe, whose architecture and educational philosophy have had, and continue to have, a profound effect on the course of American architecture.

There are no threats at this time.

S. R. Crown Hall received an award-winning restoration in 2005. Otherwise, there are no changes at this time.
